  1. David Brumley

    These boots felt like they were already broke in right out of the box. Very comfortable, can work full shift plus and they still feel great. The best part of the boot is made in the US of A…….

    These boots are comfortable right out the box. Im a union millwright and spend plenty of hours walking,standing crawling etc. In all types of Terrain. Time will tell how long the toes hold up from crawling around under machines. They seem very well made and sturdy,but at the same time flexible. They are a bit slippery when walking through standing puddles of oil.

  3. Josh

    Simply the perfect work boot in every way

  4. Jack Walker

    This is my first pair of thorogoods and will not be my last! These boots are awesome right out of the box, but get more comfortable as you wear them! Great boots!!

    I purchased Thorogood for the first time 2 Years ago. I did redwings for years. Two major differences. The stitching and the boots lasted 2 years. I could go longer but there’s no tread left. I bought the Th Wellington’s here recently and I love them for around the house. But this boot is my work boot. Keep making them so I can keep buying them. USA baby!

  6. Micah Guerrero

    love these boots on my 4th pair fist time with the 6in tall love how much easier they come off after a long day. Will continue to stay faithful to Thorogood. thank you for such quality.

    I have always worn Timberland boots until these. Discussed my plantar fasciitis woes with a co-worker who suggested this style of boot. They are so comfortable and have helped mitigate the pain of being on my feet on various surfaces you see around job sites. Huge Thorogood fan now.

  8. Jason Fessler

    This is my first pair of thorogood boots. Have been a journeyman wireman out of 357 for 16 year. Have gone through Georgia boots, red wings, worx you name it. I have always been skeptical of a steel toe boot which is why I have never purchased these. I decided to try these and as soon as I put them on they were like standing on clouds. I’m a month in and they are just as comfortable as day 1. Superb quality and comfortability. Only reason it is not a 5 star is because I personally would like to see a composite toe. Other than that they are amazing.

  9. Cyril

    Great boots. Took about three weeks to break them in. The left one rubbed on the top of my foot where the leather for the laces meets the side. But other than that great boots.

  10. Dion reed

    The boots felt amazing right when I bought them, they continued to get more and more comfortable as the days went on, I know for sure that I made the right decision buying these boots, I’ll probably never buy a different pair ever again.

  11. Elvis Martin

    Best work boots ever ! I’ve always used diehards and the difference is night and day! Love these boots

  12. Casey

    I love these boots! They’re the most comfortable work boot I’ve ever worn! I sometimes wear them even when I’m not working. Very impressed!

  13. Ben

    Not comfortable at all. Unfortunately I waited past the 30 day timeline to return them. Now I’m stuck with overpriced boots that I’ll probably never wear.

  14. Mike

    Great boot almost zero breaking in
    Excellent quality and craftsmanship

  15. John Traenkner

    Only thing I wear. With the proper care. they last forever Thank you thorogood!

  16. Patrick T Dunne

    Love the boots they are the only thing that go on my feet

  17. Thomas

    Love these boots! Professional carpenter of 19 years, these are my favorite boots. Best looking, comfort, & safety all in 1. Buy these now! You’ll be very happy!

  18. Big Mike

    I love my thorogood boots. I have a pair for work and a pair for everything else, these boots are the only thing I put on my feet.

  19. Clay

    This is my 4th pair of these particular boots, so I’m obviously a fan. They break in quickly and are comfortable for a long day on your feet. Whether I have to be on concrete or on a pitched roof I find these to be the best all around boots with plenty of support where needed. The only problem you will have is that they look so good when you get them you don’t want to wear them to work knowing they will never look the same!

    Now I guess it’s time to send my old 8″ pair back to be re-soled and get some more life out of them helping justify the price!

  20. Pablo Gallegos

    Amazing boots and alot easier to break in as opposed to dr. Martens. Very happy with purchase

  21. Austin Byers

    I started wearing thorogoods when I was 16. I will never wear another boot in my life. I will live and die in my thorogoods. Pictures do not do these boots justice. Unbelievable quality and comfort. Hard working boots for hard working people.

  22. John

    Boot and sole are already separating

  23. Adelso Hernandez

    I used to wear red wings thru my electrical apprenticeship. But I would always hear these opinions on boot wear about thorogoods. Until I actually found a retailer I was stoked! Tried them on and never took them off easy to break in awesome for electricians. Not only that but they are American made! In our very own us soil. That is what captivated me to purchase this.

  24. Juan G.

    I purchased my Heritage and let me tell you. They are the best work boot Ever. Nuff said!

  25. Joe McConkey

    Love the boots, well made, very easy to break in and comfortable from day one!

  26. Jesse

    Great work boots!!! I just ordered another pair of the insulated work boots. Can’t wait to get them in.

  27. Dan Hearing

    I love my boots! Used to wear keens but they were bugging my knees. Switched to a wedge sole on the thourogood and will never look back. I’m a commercial electrician and am always working off a ladder and on uneven surfaces. I have gone through a pair every year and will continue to purchase these boots until persuaded differently.

  28. John Grant

    Good made boots very comfortable right of the box ! Union made in the USA.

  29. Ryan Colligan

    Love Thorogood boots. Have been wearing them for years and they are the most comfortable boot I have ever had.

  30. Andrew

    These are my favorite boots I’ve ever had! I’ve tried all brands and keep coming back to thorogood. I also have a pair of the emperor toe boots which are great as well. I love the styling of the moc toe with the wedge sole even though the sole is dirty now as I’m a mechanic. Great non slip even in coolant and oil.

  31. Wyatt Roberts

    Just bought my second pair to start breaking in. Unfortunately they aren’t the AMERICAN HERITAGE – 6″ BLACK SAFETY TOE – MOC TOE MAXWEAR WEDGE. I prefer the 8” boots and unfortunately they don’t have an 8” black safety Moc toe wedge.

    Awesome boots none the less comfortable out of the box. Feel lighter on my feet than other steel toe boots.

    As soon as the 8” blacks come around (if ever) I’ll buy grabbing a pair.

  32. Shawn Ross

    So this is my 6th year buying your boots. Never had a broken stitch or laces and amazingly after years of hard use no lingering odor from the boots. My only suggestion about how to improve your product line is not for public consumption. Contact me directly if your interested. You have a customer for the next 10 years until I retire. I am a welder fabricator and my boots get a real beating. Thank you for the armour for my feet.

  33. Brad Vincent

    So far I have to give them 2 thumbs up. My only complaint is that the black steel toe boots are not offered in 8”. I love the way they feel already “broken in” as soon as you put them on. I own 3 pairs of Thorogood boots and still wear them all. Great product and USA made.

  34. Tom

    I really like these boots. They’re the most comfortable boots I’ve found for my flat feet. I must have good foot wear to keep me going at work.

  35. Bryan

    I love these boots. I wear wear them almost every shift but will occasionally switch up to let them dry out.
    Unfortunately I have to put black edge dressing on the soles every couple of weeks because they need to have a black sole appearance from the side and Thorogood doesn’t sell them with a black sole.

    When it time to resoled I will have it done in black.

  36. Mike Pettengill

    Awesome boots, great quality. They are my second pair in two years. I love them and I won’t buy another boot again. Quality not quantity is why I love My Thorogood Moch toe’s.

  37. Ty Garrison

    Great so far. The moc toe seemed to take about a week to break in compared to my round toes which required zero break in. Overall, great boots.

  38. James Jackson

    They are nice boots. Took a bit to wear them in and be comfortable but now are very nice boots. They are almost to comfort of my Georgia’s Hopefully they last longer then they did

  39. Timothy Walden

    So far so good. I like the workmanship, quality materials adding up to fast break in time and a very comfortable boot. I like that these are American made by Union Labor. I will reserve judgment on how durable the sole is for my circumstances but over all I really like this boot. I didnt know at time of purchase about the he resole, rebuild options so that is a big plus as well.

  40. Rolando Hernandez

    I’ve been buying them for over 6 years no complaints

  41. Mike

    These boots are ok if your not in a rough environment. I’m a machinist and these boots get scuffs and scratched and cut very easy. I’ve only had them for a couple months and they look beat. Eyelets and studs are already separating. Not something you’d expect from a $200 set of boots. They are comfortable and had little to no break in but I’d shop elsewhere if you want a durable boot.

  42. Hank

    Awesome looking boot, got a lot of compliments on this boot. Breaking them in lasted only a week. Fits comfortably on my feet, work an 8 hour shift and no problems. However, the boots are very narrow I ended up getting a double EE wide, and they are still a bit narrow but comfortable. Also they felt a little loose in the heel but is not a problem. Overall great shoe!!

  43. Andi

    Wow. I have honestly never loved footwear more. I think Thorogoods are the best money you can spend on footwear for comfort, safety, and even aesthetics. If I could, I would sleep with my boots on. As a welder who is on my feet all day these boots are perfect. At first I wasn’t convinced that the wedge would be for me, as I have never worn wedged boots – but it’s actually my favorite thing about the boots aesthetically. Work wise, the wedge helps with grip/non-slip and also is good on the job site. I highly recommend Thorogoods to all. I am now looking to buy some casual, every day, non-safety toe boots for all occasions.

  44. James Stitzer

    Best pair of boots I’ve ever owned.

  45. Fernando Ontiveros

    🇺🇸I’ll never buy another brand of work boot, I’m on my feet all day and these Hertitage boots are the most comfortable work boots I’ve owned.

    Thank You All at Thorogood!👍🏼

  46. Fernando Ontiveros

    I’ll never buy another brand of work boots!

  47. Bill Mitchell

    These boots were amazing right out of the box. Been wearing them for two weeks and they feel like a boot that has been broken in for years. Love them never switching. Fit true to size and I love that they are made in America.

  48. Rob P

    Top of the line boots! Very comfortable right out of the box, nice soft leather and good looking. Hard to find a good quality all American made boot any more.

  49. Justin

    I’ve owned these boots for 3 months now so I feel I can give an accurate review of my experience with them. The first day wearing them my feet and my knees hurt. I felt every bit of shock from the hard concrete floor and almost felt as if there was no insoles in them at all. I went to the store and bought different insoles for them and the change in comfort was like night and day. The insoles for thorogoods are just not very well made in my opinion. I owned a pair of thorogood oxfords that I bought thorogood insoles for and didn’t care for them then either. The break in was not bad the leather is soft so they didn’t kill my feet during the process. I think it took about a month for them to really feel worn in and at that point they are very comfortable. The right boot squeaks when I walk which didn’t bother me at first, but it does tend to get annoying after awhile. The soles have a little wear at the edge of the heal but the rest of the tread seems to be holding up pretty well. I walk on painted concrete so the soles will probably last longer for me than they might for other people. Overall they are excellent boots and would definitely buy them again and plan too. They aren’t perfect but they are the closest to it I have worn so far.

    Wearing them all day around the shop doing welding and fabrication comfort is key. They do hold up to tough work Enviroments. Best boots I’ve owned. On my second pair and I’ll continue purchasing these boots. they keep me going throughout the day. Comfort all day long.

  51. Steve Oliver

    The boot of my choice for 30+ years were Red Wings, what was I thinking? I am a Journeyman Wireman out of Local 22 and was repeatedly told of how comfortable these boots were. I never could of imagined that they were any more comfortable than the boots I was wearing, boy was I wrong. After working 10+ hours I would start to run out of gas while other guys were still going strong. Guys would tell me to get rid of those heavy boots and get a pair of Thorogood boots if I wanted to be able to feel better longer. After wearing them for a couple of days, they really were like wearing a pair of sneakers. The only drawbacks to the Thorogood boots that I purchased was the unavailability of Composite Toe, the cotton fiber lining that binds up when you slip your foot in, and the eyelets at the top instead of having the hooks all the way up. These issues wont stop me from buying another pair but I am just trying to be transparent as possible about my review.

  52. Justin Dilday

    Really comfortable boot. After a week of wearing them, they feel like sneakers. I work 12 hours a day in them and have felt no discomfort. Will be buying Thorogood boots again.

  53. Steve Hegedus

    I love my American made work boots.

  54. Loren B.

    I wear these 5 days a week, 8 hours a day, trucking through a factory with concrete floors often slick with oil. They’re not the best out there for slip resistance but they’re pretty good. They stand up to the hydraulic fluid and coolant I encounter daily. COMFORTABLE. They walk very well thanks to the flexible wedge sole, they don’t make a sound unlike inefficient, clompy logger boots. They take a bit to break in, not that they’re uncomfortable for the break in, they just aren’t molded to your foot yet. Once they’re broken in they’re like slippers. The simple leather boot construction means they stay cool in the summer. They’ve got plenty of room in the toe and I don’t feel the safety toes at all, I’ve got slightly wider toes than most. I plan on sticking with this boot for the rest of my career, hopefully they keep making them for that long.

  55. Matthew Heeke

    Pictures do not allow you to appreciate the level of detail on these works of art. When I first saw them I was taken aback at the beauty of these boots. The leather, stitching and sole are simply the finest level of craftsmanship I’ve ever seen. When I put them on I was amazed how comfortable they were right out of the box, granted it did take about a week to allow the leather to break into my step, but it was nothing like the Red Wings that I have been wearing for the last twenty years. Now they are so comfortable I do not want to take them off. I did not know about Thorogood until recently, however I must say sorry Red Wing I have found a new home for my feet. The size ran true for me so for whoever is considering these fine boots keep that in mind.
